The Amity Regional Athletic Department's mission is to provide a comprehensive, diverse, wholesome and dynamic program, which is consistent with the basic philosophy of the Amity Regional School District. As an integral part of a student's total education, Amity Athletics makes a significant contribution to the personal growth and development of those involved.
Amity Regional is extremely proud of the success of its many programs, but does not condone a "win at all costs" attitude. The purpose of the program is to ensure a positive experience for those students who choose to participate. It is also a goal to provide all student-athletes with an opportunity to learn the importance of ethical behavior, good sportsmanship, positive values and a realization of their self-worth.
